We want to use the successful genre of a "DOCTOR SERIES" to draw attention to the policy concerning asylum seekers of the German government. It is important to us that the asylum seekers should not be portrayed as victims. Above all, we want to show their strength and determination when attempting to build a new life for themselves.
Dr. Illegal and his family are an example of the many immigrants who are trying to make a new life for themselves in Germany. In particular an example of those asylum seekers who have been painfully branded by the flight from their native country, and who are forced to come to terms with their life in hostels for asylum seekers, with bureaucracy and with great misfortune. They manage to find a new homeland without losing their cultural roots.
The unflagging will of the characters in achieving their goals is the central theme of our project. In our research we have seen this strength again and again, and it is the central idea that we want to put across. It is our primary purpose to show that with enough will and determination, integration is possible.
